The Ideal of Kingship in the Writings of Charles Williams, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien

Divine Kingship is Reflected in Middle-Earth

by Christopher Scarf

ISBN: 9780227174012

“Scarf focuses not simply on kingship, but the exact ways in which many presentations of or allusions to kingship as it appears in the fiction, nonfiction, and poetry of the three best-known Inklings is a reflection of a very specific concept about God […] this book is well worth reading for anyone interest in a specifically Christian interpretation of the work of Tolkien, Lewis and Williams. It is also worthwhile for those who are interested in the idea of kingship as presented in their books. […] Christopher Scarf has created a scholarly approach to a narrow concept that presents some rare gems waiting to be mined by the careful reader.”
